NOTICE: Water and Sewer Amendments Filing Deadline

The April 2018 Cycle of Amendments to the 2008 Water and Sewer Plan is quickly approaching! This will be the last water and sewer amendments cycle review for the current administration, as Prince George’s County typically does not hold an August Cycle of Amendments during an election year. This is due to constraints imposed on certain legislations that are mandated, and adhere to specific schedules, times and dates. 

The April 2018 Cycle has a filing deadline of Monday, April 2, 2018. We strongly urge you to file applications as soon as possible to ensure receipt and acceptance by the application filing deadline. Late submittals may not be accepted, and may not be reviewed until the December 2018 Cycle, with the election of the new administration. Should you have any questions regarding the cycles of amendments, please feel free to contact the Water and Sewer Plan Coordinator, Shirley A. Branch, at 301-636-2060 or at
